The Cutest Cloth "Ziplocs."

March 4, 2009

I've been trying to wean our family off Ziplocs. OK, maybe not completely wean....there are times when only a Ziploc will do. But B and I began to notice how many of those bags we were going through and it started bothering us. Sometimes they get used for just a couple of hours and then what? Sit in a landfill for a million billion years. I don't want to know. I think I mentioned we started using those waxed paper bags (paper breaks down much more quickly plus you don't have the scary plastic factor). But these cloth bags might be even better! Great for a snack in the car for the kids or a sandwich for me. Aren't they cute??

  1. SUPER COOL! perfect for dry snacks for big and little people alike. Great tip. I hate ziplocks, but I love them, but I hate, but I love them... I think most moms understand. Thanks

  2. Great find! I have been trying to conciously use fewer bags by using reusable containers instead but these would be a great addition.

  4. Not crazy! I'm starting to get more and more annoyed at my reliance on ziplocs. I made myself a little sandwich holder so I don't have to put my sandwiches in ziplocs, and I think some bags would be a great idea.

  12. Love the simplicity, but agree there may be clean-up issues and dry-out potential. I just came across these today at snacktaxi: http://www.snacktaxi.com/store/index.php?cPath=23

  13. Oh man, those are fantastic! I'm trying to switch out as much disposable stuff as I can in our apartment. It's making my boyfriend a little nervous. He's guarding the toilet paper :)
